development. i warriors, i can understand how the port and city want to develop this pier because they've been trying to develop it. they voted in 1990 to develop the waterfront until there was a comprehensive waterfront [speaker not understood] to try to get the international [speaker not understood] cruise terminal built. [speaker not understood] the economy and the cost of updating the pier now the fiscal feasibility study which you supervisors have actually approved would cost the tax payers $120 million. there's also another thing that is really critical is the congestion. the super congestion in the area. luckily i live in this area because i wanted the multi ple transportation bay area options to me and i walk to bart every day. i don't have to drive a car. but there is a lot of small businesses that are in the live-work units, commuters, people who come and go. and i understand how this plan to have 600 additional parking spaces and 200 on the other lot will fit into the city's adopted congestion management program. that affects all the funding and so forth, so, thank you. >> thank you
wasn't in san francisco, but it's in other cities and my gut feeling was a few years ago when mobile food trucks came out, oh, that won't affect us here, but guess what, that is affecting us here. you are starting to see them pop up. there was the rubber person selling the rubber stuffer out the truck and they vanished and i haven't seen them around. i have seen a small truck with clothes in the commission and i'm okay, it's going to start to happen. if we could take about that at one of the meetings because that is going to happen sooner or later. >> i have seen women's clothing trucks at levi plaza. >> so yes, commissioners, that is starting to be a standing agenda with the policy committee, but we have beening to doing work and staff member christin murdock is staffing the work on this and we'll proficient you with a more detailed update at the general meeting. x any other items? >> next item. >> item 15, adjournment. >> motion. >> second. >> all in favor? >> aye. >> commissioners the meeting is adjourned at 7:10 p.m. >> when the new california academy of sciences
that the city is doing and the police department is doing around the crisis intervention teams and i would like to go a step further in the new year to look at that and see how we are hitting our stride in the crisis response within the department and in putting this team together and the training that is really necessary for us to do the kind of policing that we know can deescalate the crisis that people find themselves in. i see it separate from the issue of tasers and electronic control weapons. it is almost like we are backwards in training a team to be able to deescalate violence and mental health crisis, and at the same time equip them with a tool that if used could have a detrimental effect on the deescalation, and also, it could open a door for, you know, greater usage within the department. that is my personal concern. and it has been a lot of people in san francisco share, i think that you can go out on the road in san francisco, and you can find a lot of people who are going to give, you know, license to the department to move forward on that. i think that as moving forward, i think
of city employees, particularly if they are in public safety, and they are way above the levels that would be allowed by this program. they good to try to buy something and part of the provision with prop c, particularly with public safety officials, but i think using that in general is a good system. because you can build a higher number because your subsidy is less if the income levels are higher and the prices are sold are. so i think that is very good way to approach this. i had a couple of questions on some of these things brought up. i understand the rate stabilization, but in fairness to the renter, but i didn't know that i guess bmr units the owners of those were the city? i'm not sure who it is. i guess it would be the project that they are in, are still allowed to raise annually .5% of whatever allowed under rent stabilization, is that correct? >> you are talking about bmr rental? >> yes, for bmr rental units. >> the increase in represent would be based on the pricing formula related to increases in ami. so it's outside of the city's rent stabilization program. it's not rela
building and office ablation. instead, city leaders, departments and project managers join forces with local architectural firms ked to build one of the greatest office buildings in america. that's more than a building. that's a living system. ♪ ♪ when san francisco first bought this land in 1999, it was home to a state office building. >> this was an old eight-story brown building the state owned and the workers' comp people were in that building. it was an old dee correctvth it building for decades. when i was a member of the board of supervisors, all of us wondered why we hadn't done anything there and the mayor thought the same. >> if an earthquake happened, the building was uninhabitable. it sat there vacant for quite a while. the city decided to buy the building in 1999 for $2. we worked and looked at ways that we can utilize the building for an office building. to build an icon i can building that will house a lot of city departments. >> the san francisco public utilities commission has an important job. we provide clean, pristine public drinking water to 2.6 million pe
side of the city. but not only, not exclusively, though. >> and i had a question about the safe routes to schools. i know that there are two on the list. i'm wondering does dph and dpw and even the school district look at the city-wide needs and prioritize it or does it just come up -- well, why would ert [speaker not understood] be on the list and not -- betsy car michael and schools in the bayview, for example? but i'm just wondering. >> right. there are actually three safe routes to school applications, et cetera, on this list. they do stem from a combination of identification efforts. one is a city-wide identification of project needs and there are also walking audits that are performed by the department of public health and also the safe routes to school members to identify specific projects to be implemented in the near future. >> and the two that i see on the list look like they're build outs and it looks like they cost [speaker not understood] for a build out. that sounds like a lot of money for a build out. i'm wondering if you could talk a little about that. >> as far as the
and i served as at the attorney general's office. we are raising three girls in the city. native san franciscan and i am happy we are brought together to shine a light on what we have done and what we need to do. >> good evening. i am julie turman and i have been on the police commission for a we're and a half and i'm a labor and employment attorney. i am excited to be here this evening to talk about the issues of domestic violence. i am grateful for the commissioner of status of women for holding the joint meeting with us and it's a pleasure to be with you and sit across my my friend. >> good evening. i am carol kingsley. i have been on the police commission for a little over two years. my day job is as an mediator of business disputes. kingsley mediation services. i always for the last 20 years have been serving on the board of the law center to prevent gun violence, a nonprofit organization aimed at sensible gun legislation to reduce gun violence and applaud the upcoming december 15 gun buy back by omega boys club so kudos to them. thank you very much commission on status
to drop its lawsuit against the city and the officials personally if we could have a meeting without reservations, discuss all the points calmly, many of which would help the harbor and help rec and park a lot because the document has massive numbers of drafting errors, incon sis tense sis, undefined terms, and there are other items that get trickier to look at, but they're important to the harbor holders, probably not to the park and rec department, they call them pebbles in your shoes, and there's some more larger fundamental issues which we think we didn't get adequate due process. we think the best way is to have a calm discussion with phil in his office, go over these items and see if we can't get a happier new year. >> thank you very much. >> just as a reminder, this is only on items that is upeder the general manager's report. we do have general comment right after this. >> good morning, commissioners, my name is [inaudible] hernandez gill, i'm the community organizer with the san francisco bicycle coalition, i would like to thank the commission for their support last
parks conference in 2015 in which we are going to be welcoming cities from all over the country to learn how we do it here in san francisco. and then, just last month, and a big thank you to all of you, san francisco voters approved proposition b. the cleanest safe neighborhood parks fund which allows us to renovate and juvinate your parks. 83 years ago, uncle john mcclarin and if you go in the gm office you can see a picture of him. started the tradition of lighting this mile-long stretch of trees started and ending here in front of the lodge where he lived for a number of years. so this, this is san francisco official holiday tree right behind us, uncle john's tree. it is a cyrus that is more than 100 years old closer to 130 years old and tonight it sports over 550 christmas holiday lights. >> so i really want to give a big shout out to the rec and parks staff that has continued the tradition and i want to thank all of them and single out a few, bob pelosio who organized tonight's event. and i also want to single out loranie bamford whose team put this on and our entire recreation staf
to participate in many of the massage parlor inspections. that to me was another example of our city being incredibly innovative in figuring out a way to confront the challenges that we do face particularly in the area of human trafficking on one side. i think it all fits to having this hearing tonight, the work of the family violence council for me - i feel like a broken record, i feel it is a model, the benefit of being both a city and county, in some respects it is easier to bring all partner agencies together by choice or by hook. but i would urge us to continue to look at regional partnerships and for ways to support this beyond our boundaries. the crimes are not just within our boundaries. >> a want to make this comment before we go into public comment, more question than anything else. in the spirit of how i do business. this is the part of tonight's agenda. i'm not saying it should have been. but tonight looking at the response of domestic violence, the prosecution rates, the query reporting module, and the other things i'm curious about the status of women. at some point
people to attend the neighborhood empowerment network awards on january 9th, here in city hall, you probably saw some signs for it on the way in and the reason i'm asking you all to attend is that on saturday december 15th, the department joined the community group help mcklairn park to break down at a new playground, it was a project the group spearhead and had which is being funded by the community opportunity fund. help mcklairn park is going to accept an award as the outstanding park group from the neighborhood empowerment neighborhood for their advocacy at mcklairn park, at the top of my list of things to celebrate, it's been all the renewed attention and investment that we with as a city have made in this absolute jewel of a park, it is our second largest park in san francisco, it is beautiful, it reflects in so many ways the diversity of our neighborhoods, of our topography, of our land and of all of the ways that people like to enjoy their parks. it is a true jewel and there are so many good things that are happening which we'll talk more and more about in the coming year in
challenging economic times. his focus on steadfast on balancing the budget, reforming city pensions and working hard on economic development and job retention. he is making city government more responsive and efficient and making public safety a top priority. mayor lee is a long time public servant. prior to becoming mayor, he served as city administrator where he focused on government efficiency and measures and reforms that reduced the size and cost of government. mayor lee first began working for the city and county of san francisco in 1989 as the investigator for the city's first whistle blower program. prior to employment with the city and county of san francisco, he was the managing attorney for the asian law caucus. i first met ed in 1992 when he became the executive director for the human rights commission and we were both 16. that's two decades ago, ed. i watched him soon become the director of city purchasing and then going on to become the director of public works. i think ed is the only mayor in city history that can carry tlau on the campaign promise to fill the
seniors or people with disabilities who lived in sro's city-wide and 68 percent of them were tenants who lived in nonprofit sro's, which are more likely to have these grab bars already installed than their private counterparts but even with that, we found less than 40 percent of tenants indicated they currently have grab bars, which is not nearly enough considering that many of the private buildings we had issues with barriers and even getting in. we expect that number city-wide to be a lot higher. i also just wanted to say about tenants. i did outreach on a weekly basis and i hear from tenants all the time that they are afraid of slipping and falling in the shower. they are having a hard time geting off the toilet which in many cases are in strange positions close to the wall, further away from the wall, i get that feedback all the time. one tenant i see all the time that i saw last week she has her ihss case worker sit right outside the bathroom while she takes her shower because she is afraid she will fall and won't be able to call out for the help she needs if she falls. i do und
the safety net going for victims in the city. i want to thank everyone for their leadership to get to this point in my question is, we talked about this a few weeks ago before the police commission. i think you are doing a great outreach to the community. obviously part of my concern that talk about over the last few weeks is in light of recent events in the city. the concern is that women who don't speak english or are living in poverty will have concerns about reaching out of the police department. we want to reassure and reach out. can you talk about your efforts to reach out to communities through various newspapers in different languages and how the department is getting the message out that we do have access to other languages and can serve diverse populations? >> anytime there is a community meeting, and it is based on a certain ethnicity group, we try to have interpretation service provided. we will post those signs in that language, so if it is held in chinatown or wherever, for that outreach. it is important when the victim makes the police report; it helps
in the whole city. but the worst part of it is t probably doesn't address that income group from the 90 to the 120, or 130th percentile. so those are some arguments i would make for rethinking the percentages that you put on there. >> if i could just in really quick on that? >> go ahead. >> one thing to keep in mind is the on-site and off-site are options that can be chosen by the developer. so there is no requirement that the developer choose an off-site option unless it becomes economically prohibitive, the off-site is an option that is offered to the developer. and i do think it provides some of the an incentive to choose an on-site option, because the ami levels would be higher for the on-site option and thus as you point out the difference between the sales price and the cost of production would be less. so the developer contribution would be minimized. that is consistent with a future policy under the housing trust fund, which will further provide incentive for developers to provide their units on-site by reducing the on-site inclusionary requirements. i want to point out th
. it will not constrain the city's ultimate decision about what to do, what sharp park, they will not alter or change the kind of alternative the city will consider as it goes through this processes. all it will do is apply the two separate proceedings as [speaker not understood]. the reason this is important is items of that golf course plan are exceptionally controversial and have skipped specific ceqa proceedings required under law. it could not go through scoping. it did not go through the notification of other public partners that must comment on the plan. and the city is at great risk of unneeded ceqa litigation if this resolution does not pass. i don't believe it is necessary to extend this another time period. it's been sitting on the docket since june and we've been awaiting comments from rec and park and planning and the city attorney ever since and haven't heard a word. so, we find it kind of surprising all of a sudden they are objecting to this resolution. so, we would request that you not continue this motion and pass it on to the board today. thank you. >> thank you. mr. drasani? >>> go
for the city to buy back guns instead of one time or once a year or twice a year, why not have a room where you are turn in a gun and why not increase the money, the money that you get when you turn in a gun? make it a little bit sweeter to turn in a gun. >> this will not be the last gun buy back. >> but how many times do we do that in a year, gun by backs? >> this was the first gun buy back in some time. we used to do them, if i recall correctly, commander cepb shah when he was here was the last time we did them twice a year. >> well, every community meeting at the bayview station we talked about guns, guns turned in, guns found, guns guns guns. if we were more proactive they'd be getting guns offer the street, we'd get more guns back. i'm sure there's money available for that. it just seems to be common sense. >> i think this is the kind city of san francisco-sfgtv. recreation and park commission meeting. (meeting will commence shortly) just insiste. >> we're back on the record, commissioners. do i have a motion with reference to line item no. 8, which is to vote whether to disclose any
that limit is that state or city? >> that was set in the original law passed in the 1980's? >> do we have any flexibility? >> no, i'm pretu sure that is established in statute, but it could be changed. >> i am thinking that instead of paying $100, we could base on the sales volume of the size of their business. >> right. i think if you started to change it, that the oppositions would be quite broad. for instance the supermarket would pay a different rate than the beverage dealers, based on volume, something like that. >> thank you. >> do you want to take this to committee? >> i would like to read through them and we can go through them rear view relatively quickly and see if any other recommendations that might have. >> the sbc encourages the department of the environment to pursue mobile redemption sisters, mobile redemption centers rotating basis could be a potential solution for the coming up next the city should resalute the geographic distribution of centers with the goal of expending them to parts of city underserve. additionally the geography of san francisco and density shou
for the city. while the situation requires a lack of morality on the part of the employees i also believe this constitutes veting of who is suitable for promotion. those less favored are given poor job assignments, closely watched, unjustly disciplined and otherwise harassed while also required to do the work of the goof-offs. as hards department's customers in addition to fleecing them of as frp money as possible, evidenced by the department's use of an unauthorized permit routing procedure to see the application everywhere possible to see if some additional fees can't be tacked on to the permit costs. the fees collected are not kept and spent by this department but by the administer of finance with director hue's approval. of course the more money the mayor gets the more likely he is to keep the appointees around. this department leaves little money for the department to function although --. >> thank you. >> i'm going to finish the sentence. >> you are off, you are not allowed -- your 3 minutes is up, sir. thank you very much. >> handsomely compensated political appointees to keep
impact that we believe might occur and what types of investments do we as a city need to make to address the demands. we have some of the highest collisions between pedestrians and vehicleses in the south of market. so, how will this project impact those rates? second, we asked questions whether we can support bike infrastructure in that neighborhood to increase bike circulation so folks can bike to and [speaker not understood]. third, we have questions about what public transit investment costs are and to meet the demands of additional gains in this neighborhood. we've already seen what muni has been able to do with giants home games. so, we have already some data analysis around what that might cost with additional warriors games. and i actually just want to bring up a point that one of my colleagues brought up last week at the budget committee meeting which i had not thought of, being that i don't represent outer portions of the city, but supervisor chiu brought up when we have giants home game night, muni doesn't run all the way to the sunset. i'm sure we experience that in other ou
in new york city that is undergoing significant development. so, i have all of the same concerns in the area where i live and i take them very seriously and so do we all. but we are trying to create a situation that will alleviate those fears and concerns and at the same time provide economic development and job growth for the neighborhood for the city and the region. we're focused on making this a place where families and other people of the neighborhood and the city can enjoy themselves. and the space that is today a surface parking lot of about three acres in a degrading concrete pier. this is something we all feel we can only improve the quality of life, the property and social values of the neighborhood as we take the concerns of those nearby to heart. thank you very much. >> thank you, mr. dikers. i actually just had a couple of comments, more comments than questions. i just want to express -- by the way, thank you so much for the presentation. the design is beautiful, and i thank the comments and feedback that we got. there is general consensus that it was presented to the
will be helpful. i worked well with the city and the oaklands. i first heard about the cta in grad school. i was studying as inner local inner regional body. my interest in transportation, i'm a computer and -- commuter and i like to serve the city. >> do you see yourself having a particular focus of priority as a member of the cse? >> two things, i would like to -- my interest are basically west to east and east to west since i live in the sun set. i'm also curious to see how the brt come through. >> okay. any comments or questions? thank you mr. goldsmith. any other candidate for district four seat or district six seat? we have any candidates for district nine come forward. if you're interested in making a statement. >> i enjoyed my role on the citizen's advisory committee. being a committee member who held them accountable and transparent. additionally i say my over ten years of work in the community, working in nonlot ofs and serving on the community board give me a wide perspective of issue that's many communities have. getting around san francisco whether it's by foot, by bus, by car,
with transportation project we work on in the city. transportation money is limited and we have to look at the utility of the project in relation to the land use that's adjacent and see if there's a way to capture it it. the other side of it is, this potential oakdale cal train station is too important. it's too good of an opportunity separated transit access for folks around that station to downtown and to the airport in places south of valencia and somehow include it because of the bridge work. that's the origin of this whole effort. it's not my favorite sport to close city streets. this is a way that you can have your cake and eat it. we can have the connector road, but we can have this potentially fabulous connection from that part of town into downtown where employment is going at the same time. in the process perhaps give the poc a more useable piece of land where currently we have industrial uses that are -- i would surmise based on highest use of that space and a street that's definitely under utilized. >> great, thank you. commissioner cohen? >> thank you very much. i like to take a chance an
that the federal judge is going to impose their will and save them time and force the city to go back or disregard city policy and process. we think that should not occur. an historic resource is been planed for destruction/demolition and if this should occur, there should be a significant community benefit. and the commission, i believe, commissioner wu has stated that the community benefit is not there. and it seems like this new project will not allow it to happen. there are plans for senior housing, senior affordable housing, which the city drastically needs. the city does not need 27 more market-rate housing. a senior affordable project can provide, perhaps up to 40 or so units that the city drastically needs. we have met our goals for market-rate housing. we are far, far behind in regards to affordable housing. i would like to close by saying that coalition for san francisco neighborhoods supports adaptable use for senior housing or another preservation alternative. to pursue enforcement actions for building code and ceqa violations. please wait 12 months before this project is considered.
organizations and also the city commissioner. i am here today to respond to someone who said that we don't know what the no lethal long-term effect of tasers are, as a volunteer to be tasered in 2004. this year my living proof of the long term damage of tasers to my sciatic nerve and the conjunctive tissue between the femur and the bone that is permanent and that is why i have been walking with a cane. but i am here to address you how severely concerned we are about sanctuary city, potentially being equipped with tasers. you probably saw some of the national tests, and 7 people are being killed by tasers, nationwide. and 766 people have been killed by tasers. nationwide, since 1983. and a long those, 177 people in california, who are actually the top state like this, about the taxes and we are above florida. and also need to mention to you that 41.9 percent of people killed by tasers in california were latino or hispanic decent. i have all of the names for you, do we want sanctuary to commit that atrosty, please consider it and apply political pressure on the subcommittee for tasers for the pol
in many places of the city is running for 2,500 or even $3,000 a month. large studios are often running for $2,000 or more a month. and many people simply cannot afford these rents. we have a lot of people who are living in roommate situations and sometimes cramming in more people than they probably should into some of these roommate situationses. and i believe people should have the option, if they want, to live on their own in a smaller unit with their own kitchen and with their own bathroom. these units will also support a growing national and international trend of what we call cooperative housing where people have smaller private spaces, but share larger centralized common areas in buildings. we're seeing this with various kinds of housing, including senior housing. mr. chairman, i respectfully request that the committee support today in forwarding this legislation today board. and, mr. chairman, if you don't have any comments, we can -- does planning have a report? >> yes. >> so, we'll hear from planning. >> thank you, good afternoon, chairman swedener, sophie hewett planning staf

what is going on and the city officer talking to the abusive party who a lot of times is a lot more proficient in english and it creates a dynamic of mistrust, we are grateful to the officers who are willing to use their personal cell phones to call language line. the reality is, in the resource environment that we are in, getting the bilingual officer to the scene is time-consuming and elongates the whole process. not having access to a cell phone for an officer forces him into position to use whatever is available or the personal cell phone. that should not be the case. one thing we do, i want to mention as a program, as a policy that we would like to see,we would like to see language line gets training on domestic violence awareness and maybe cultural competency issues. they provide a huge service to the city. the city is one of their biggest clients. i think there is a lot to be said for the idea that language in and of itself is not a panacea; it is not monolithic. there is a difference between saying a restraining order and saying something else, and how you eve
